The Ultimate Guide to Labiaplasty in Costa Rica

Women who suffer from a slack or loose vagina may find that labiaplasty in Costa Rica can be an effective solution.

Over time, the vagina can become slack due to a number of reasons, including the aging process and childbirth. This type of vaginal rejuvenation can tighten the vagina and help women to enjoy a more satisfying sex life while also feeling more confident about the appearance of the vagina.

Labiaplasty can also be used as a corrective measure when the labia major or minor are asymmetrical. In some instances, labiaplasty may be used along with vaginoplasty to achieve desired goals. This may be the case when the patient experiences physical discomfort due to abnormalities or even when the patient is embarrassed to deformed labia major or minor.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty in Costa Rica?

Patients considering having labiaplsty performed in Costa Rica should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations. If considering this procedure due to slackening that has occurred following childbirth, patients may wish to wait until they are done bearing children before having labiaplasty performed, as future childbearing could nullify the effect of this procedure.

Some of the most common reasons for pursuing labiaplasty include decreased stimulation and sensation during sexual intercourse, tampons falling out, tissue protruding from the vagina, the presence of scar tissue, embarrassing sounds emanating from the vagina during intercourse, or one's partner slipping out of the vagina during intercourse.

Why Get Labiaplasty Performed in Costa Rica

An increasing number of people are choosing to travel to Costa Rica to have a variety of medical procedures performed, including labiaplasty. Offering a warm, tropical climate and variety of outdoor activities, including surfing, snorkeling, diving, and zip lining, Costa Rica is the ideal destination for a little R&R. Additionally, prices for medical procedures in Costa Rica tend to be far less expensive than in the United States. Patients are often able to save at least 50 percent on the cost of their procedure by having it performed in Costa Rica.

This beautiful Latin American country offers highly qualified physicians and state-of-the-art medical facilities, but it is still a good idea to perform research prior to booking your procedure. We are here to help at Medical Departures by performing an extensive background check. This check includes verifying qualifications and professional memberships. We also want to ensure the facility adheres to international standards, such as those established by the International Standards Organization. Our staff also performs legal and criminal background checks and interviews real patients. Before including a facility on our list, we also make an in-person visit.

How Long Does Labiaplasty Take and What Should I Expect from Recovery?

You will first meet with your surgeon to review your medical history and reasons for having a labiaplasty performed. During your consultation with your physician, you will also discuss the amount of tissue to be removed. In most instances, this procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis and will take approximately two hours under a local anesthetic.

Lasers are commonly used to remove small amounts of tissue in this procedure, greatly reducing the amount of time required to perform the procedure as well as reducing healing time. Two techniques are generally used in labiaplasty. The wedge method involves making an incision across the labia's width. With a Z-incision method, a modified wedge procedure is used, creating a zig-zag incision. This method can help to reduce scar tension, which can sometimes be a problem with the traditional wedge method.

Following your procedure, it is common to experience bruising and swelling in the labia and surrounding area. Oral pain medication can help with any discomfort you may experience, as can applying cold compresses. Your doctor may also prescribe oral antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection. You may also be advised to abstain from sexual activity as well as exercise for several weeks after your procedure. Additionally, you should avoid using tampons.
